I'm looking at upgrading the original alternator to support all the additional accessories. I was going to just have it rebuilt locally but it looks like I can buy new one for less.

Will this alternator work on my '96 Maristar 200? (NOT the LT1 engine)

Anyone else used these alternators? I'm surprised at how cheap they are. It looks like it would fit by looking at the pictures but I'm not positive.

I just bought a similar one wire 105amp for my 81 to replace the 35amp and used amazon as well. It looks to be good for the little cash I spent, about $70 shipped, which was cheaper than having the alt shop rebuild the factory one for $120ish. I have not been able to use it yet since we are moving

OK, I had a similar altenator built for my 95 Maristar. I have the LT 1 though. Went from 50 amp alt to 105 amp. The wiring all matched my factory unit....


However, the issue I had and you will probably face is the case was a bigger diameter than the lower output case. I had to modify my brackets to hold the larger alt. It all looks factory now, but the mounting was a test of fabrication skills.

I did this 2 summers ago and do not regret it one bit.
